2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Newark isn't a safe town but if you stay on campus you'll be good, you can also venture out to njit.

1 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus crime is horrible, but his is Newark.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Better than New Brunswick. It's weird because everyone expects Newark to be drugs and violence everything but the worst case I heard of was some getting their phone stolen and returned.
